Berl-in motion

I just returned home from spending three days at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, attending the 2014 WPPI  conference. After what I thought would turn out to be a waste of time, I’m now sitting back, reflecting on the wonderful new friends and industry relationships forged as well as catching up with a slew of familiar faces from back in my onOne days. What is interesting (to me, at least) is that this is the very first trip that I can remember where I didn’t take a single photo with my camera. It’s not that I didn’t have it with me… I just never actually reached for it. Go figure.

For some reason, I guess, this little bit of reflection time manifested itself in me editing this photo of some travelers taken at a pristine Berlin subway station. I sat on this bench for about 20 minutes, trying to capture these ephemeral slices of time of people who were simply going to or fro. The articulating screen of my Sony A7 made it particularly easy to keep the camera covert and braced as I took the series of .04 second exposures. It turns out that this was my favorite of the bunch.

    Awesome shot! You should try doing selective colour, especially for this photo for the yellow.. it just puts more emphasis on colour and abolishes other colour distractions :) Other than that, great photography!
